Welcome   to 6th Grade!

Coming   into their first year of middle school 6th graders are continually encouraged   in their walk of faith and education. Redeemer provides high-level academics   and fosters critical and creative thinking skills.

In   science, students will participate in multiple enriching labs and are part of   the organic gardening project that donates food to the soup kitchen. Training   students to care for God’s creation is one of the most important lessons that   we focus on throughout the year in science and geography.

Having   been in Lutheran schools from Pre-K through college, Christian schools are   where I want to be. God is at work all around us and I am thankful to serve   at a wonderful, Christ centered church and school. God uses Redeemer to   connect people to life in Jesus daily. Life is busy, but taking time to   receive God’s gifts on Sunday is the highlight of my week.

Welcome   to 8th Grade!

Mr.   Utech attended Lutheran Schools from preschool through 8th grade, with the   majority of time spent at St. Paul Lutheran School in Boca Raton, Florida. He   continued on to Boca Raton Community High School and graduated with honors in   2000. After one year at Valparaiso University, he transferred to Concordia   University RIVER FOREST and earned his Bachelors of Arts degree in Elementary   Education with a concentration in Mathematics in 2004.

Mr.   Utech’s first call was to Shepherd of theCoast Lutheran School where he spent   much of his time there as 7th and 8th grade teacher. He developed math and   science programs for SOC and also worked to build the school athletic program   and health awareness among his students. He coached several sports teams as   well. He was also instrumental in getting a youth group started at Shepherd   of the Coast.

Mr.   Utech then went on to serve at Trinity Lutheran School in Davenport, Iowa. He   was the 6th grade homeroom teacher. Over his 5 years there, Mr. Utech also   taught 5th through 8th grade math and Algebra, 6th and 7th grade religion, PE,   computer and health. He also coached basketball and golf at Trinity, and   served as Athletic Director for two+ years. Mr. Utech was also involved in   the leadership of the junior high youth ministry at Trinity.

You   will find Mr. Utech looking for any opportunity to stay connected to God in   The Word (Bible), spending time outside and participating in various sporting   activities, cheering for his favorite Florida sports teams and the University   of Michigan, and hanging out with his friends and family (including being   Uncle to the 3 best nephews in the world!)

Mr.   Utech is excited to be at Redeemer and looks forward to new opportunities for   ministry at our Church and School.
